Tree-based fibre sources are becoming an important fraction of waste and its derivative products are excellent in nutritional compositions which does not have adverse effects on the environment, gradually it is becoming an attractive source of fibre.
Our Market research analysis indicated that there is availability of huge inventory of palm biomass amongst especially the rural smallholder farmers and processors who often live this as waste without inspite of its high nutritional value.
Though research on possible uses of same to enhance our compost for the farmer, a blend of this waste with compost was created to ensure sustainability and balanced development of the palm processing industry through recycling.
This will in the long ran have impact on rural poverty reduction through product sourcing, Business synergies and the production of value-added products.
